Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

Looking forward to a great week!
We had a great week at home. The house is almost all done just a few things here and there to complete but certainly livable. It was fun getting the girls settled into school life again and catching up with family and friends. I was also able to squeeze in a few physiotherapy appointments as well. We are on the road again to Detroit with a little excitement of seeing a bear on the 416, having to come to a complete stop. Mike and I are excited to get going again, looking forward to see what gains can be made this week. On Wednesday they will assess my abilities which will be interesting to see the differences in the numbers from when I was originally assessed 5 weeks ago. Life has been full of challenges but we are starting to figure it out slowly. I'm thankful for a God that is full of grace and gives us what we need for the day. You start to realize just how much you need Him when your struggling through a trial, I just wish we could realize that prior to having the trial. Thank you to all of you, who have kept us in your prayers we so appreciate it. Praying for all of you! Big Hugs Sandra
